Dominion Virginia Power has shut down one nuclear reactor at the North Anna Power Station for refueling.
Refueling is typically conducted at eighteen-month intervals, and should take about one month.
In a memo to employees, Dominion said, a portion of the reactor will be replaced, and a number of maintenance activities will be performed. Crews are expected to repair a coolant system valve, and seal maintenance on a coolant pump.
